Marketing innovation is said to be the elaboration of a new concept or strategy of marketing, different from the existing marketing methods in the firm, therefore not having been used previously, contemplating alterations in design or in the packing of the product, in the distribution and promotion of products, in the price policy, which make it pos Little you may have realised but there exist certain models in the minds of the marketing gurus on how to go about bringing such an innovation to the fore. These mental models are tools to categorise an event, assess its consequences, and consider appropriate actions (including doing nothing), and to do so rapidly and efficiently.

In the marketing and strategy literature, this phenomenon and the mental model concept is noticed, but empirical analysis is lacking behind.
